Outdoor dining is one of Cleveland's summer pleasures. Although the season can be short, the city abounds with patios, decks, and other "al fresco" dining areas. Take a look at our top picks for outdoor Cleveland dining.

Your's Truly on Shaker Square

13228 Shaker Square, Cleveland, OH 44120-2315, USA
Phone +1 216-751-8646

The many outdoor patios lining Shaker Square are an ideal place to while away the hours with a newspaper or your laptop as you watch the rapid trains and shoppers crossing the square. Yours Truly offers one of the best. The hearty food -- burgers, sandwiches, breakfast, and entree specials -- is delicious and the service is fresh-faced and efficient.

The Harp

4408 Detroit Ave, Cleveland, OH 44113-2731, USA
Phone +1 216-939-0200

What's better than a traditional Irish pub with patio views of downtown Cleveland and Lake Erie? That's what offered at The Harp, on Cleveland's near west side. The brews are local and Irish, the food's hearty and tasty, and the views are some of the best in Cleveland. The large patio is an ideal place to watch the 4th of July fireworks over the lake but arrive early.

Lockkeeper's Restaurant

8001 Rockside Rd, Valley View, OH 44125, USA
Phone +1 216-524-9404

Want to enjoy Lockkeeper's superb cuisine and comprehensive wine list without the formal setting? Try the restaurant's relaxed patio, which wraps around the south and west sides of the building, overlooking the Cuyahoga River. The menu is the same, but the feel is more relaxed. Avoid Wednesday nights, however, when nearby Rockside Road roars with motorcycles heading for a nearby "bike" night.
